This is a bad idea, as Microsoft has taken over SPF and turned it into its 
SenderID, which it will now be using as its weapon of choice against UNIX.  
In fact, we just had a discussion about this topic here at Inter7 today 
during lunch, and we all agreed it's a bad thing.

Also, SPF breaks forwarding, and adds complexity and stupidness to the 
internet mail infrastructure and doesn't really solve any problems.  Do not 
use SPF.
